    [post_content] => A small Pennsylvania town is shaken when Zack Fisher, the infant son of a prominent Amish family, is kidnapped. Accusations fly. Although everyone comes under suspicion, the case goes cold. Zack’s sister Naomi, who was supposed to be watching him, blames herself for the next 20 years – then takes matters into her own hands. Packed with a cast of interesting and complex characters, including a quirky, noir-style detective and an amateur Amish sleuth, this musical mystery tells a moving story about learning to forgive yourself.

Presented in partnership with Blue Gate Musicals, with a script by Martha Bolton based on Wanda Brunstetter’s best-selling Daughters of Lancaster County series, this light-hearted whodunit is brought to life by a talented cast of professionals. Chosen from 5,000 hopefuls at auditions across the country, our cast members have appeared at Sight & Sound Theatres, Ozark Actors Theatre, Peach State Summer Theatre, Lexington Children’s Theatre, South Bend Civic Theatre and other venues. This production includes several veterans of the Bird-in-Hand Stage.

If faith, family and self-forgiveness matter to you, Stolen will steal your heart.

“We are absolute snobs when it comes to camping. If we pull 50 feet in and it’s not clean, we’ll turn around. Country Acres is one of the nicest campgrounds we’ve ever been to. We usually come for two weeks in July and October. We’re always here for Thanksgiving and the Fourth of July, when we have a good-sized cookout. We’re always here opening weekend and usually four or five days in August and September. It just feels like our second home.”

— Tom & Jeanne Roberson, Glassboro, NJ

Welcome from Kathy, our Property Manager

With more than 18 acres, we’re large enough to offer generous sites for big rigs, but small enough to get to know you. Our friendly staff is committed to helping make your stay memorable. As our Guest, you can enjoy a complimentary bus tour along the back roads of Amish country that’s exclusive to our lodging Guests. Our location just off Route 30 gives you easy access to outlet shopping, dining, entertainment, Dutch Wonderland and more. Gather here with friends and family and enjoy our pool and other recreational facilities, including volleyball, croquet, horseshoes and shuffleboard. And ask us about special events and activities (like free breakfasts and ice cream socials) for an extra taste of Smucker family hospitality. We’re two miles from the quaint village of Bird-in-Hand and our convenient location puts you just minutes away from a farm-to-fork meal at our own Family Restaurant & Smorgasbord or the homemade specialties of our Bakery & Cafe.

For more information, please call us at (717) 687-8014 or toll-free at (866) 675-4745. You can also request a reservation online.
